For Art Clokey's birthday, five great stop-motion shorts
In honor of Gumby creator Art Clokey, here are five of our favorite stop-motion short films.
3. Gumbasia (1955)
Gumbasia so impressed 20th Century Fox producer Sam Engel that Fox decided to fund Clokey's 15-minute short, "Gumby Goes to the Moon," which marked the first appearance of the affable green character. Clokey would go on to create Gumby shorts for "The Howdy Doody Show."
